It was supposedly done with a Bonneville by a former member and vendor. No way to know for sure. If we knew where he was to prove the swap, we'd be too busy beating his *** and taking our money back from his wallet to notice the car.

Now that'* one of them quotes that just to dam funny and too dam sad at the same time. I have often thought of going RWD with my Bonnie but basically the money would be intense and the car gutted inside the engine bay and underneath for it to be anything but an episode on monster garage. A big block would be x 2.

i think a big block would be too difficult, but a small block is very possible. here aretwo options that could back it work.

small block.

www.v8archie.com with this kit you'll be able to install a v-8 and keep it FWD, eliminating the need for extensive body mods.

if you must go big block i would recommend building or extensivly modifying you existing front subfram to accept the BBC in a traditional north-south layout and using a TH425 out of a toranado or similar FWD car.

think outside the box people, it'* good for you.
